by Adam Dryer, age 9 (almost)
Hey everybody! My name is Adam. Well, not really, but my Mom won't let me tell you my real name. Anyways, let's get to blogging. First things first--tomorrow's my birthday, and I'll be nine. That's why my mom is letting me blog. I'm celebrating my birthday quite a few ways. One of them is my mom, dad and I are going to see the Lion King musical tomorrow night. It's going to be fun. I'm also gonna have a sleepover with a few of my friends. They're coming over so we can do fun stuff like watch movies and play video games and other stuff. Another way I'm celebrating my birthday is that I got money from family members and used it to buy a Nintendo DS. I'll tell you what a DS is later. But for now, one more thing. My grandmother, I call her Mimi, is coming over for my birthday. My grandmother, who I call Gego, was here last weekend. Oh, I just remembered. I was going to tell you what a DS is. Well, it's a really cool video game system, that's for sure. Here's a list of what cool features a DS has:
- It has two screens. One screen is where you actually play the game, and the other holds valuable information.
- It has a digital pen that you can use to write messages to other DS-es, to make the game cooler and other stuff.
- It can play both DS games AND Gameboy Advance games.
- It has a lot of buttons, which makes the game more complicated, which makes it fun.
- When you first turn the system on, it has a digital clock, calendar, and something called picto-chat. Picto-chat is when you use the digital pen to write messages to other DS-es.
Now, I'm going to make a list of things so you'll know more about me.
- I like video games.
- I'm going to third grade next year.
- My favorite movies are The Lion King, Chicken Little and Cars.
- I enjoy publishing my own books.

- I am a Bear Scout in Cub Scouts.
- I am going to start Tae Kwon Do this summer.
- My favorite sport is swimming.
- My favorite subject in school is writing.
- My favorite books are Stink The Incredible Shrinking Kid, Ricky Ricotta's Might Robot and Charlotte's Web.
- I have two brothers, one sister, one mom, one dad, one dog and one hermit crab.

- My favorite television shows are Sponge Bob, The Fairly OddParents, Jimmy Neutron and Danny Phantom.
- When I grow up I'm going to be a voice for an animated movie.
- My favorite vacation spot is Disney World.
- In my free time I like to have a few snacks.
- My favorite food is fried shrimp with tartar sauce.
- When I can't get to sleep I turn over my pillow, fluff it, and then lay my head down. It helps me.
- My favorite company is Nintendo.
- A lot of times my brothers and sister drive me nuts.
And so, that's a little bit about me. That's my blog post! I'll be blogging next year. Bye!
